Check out this concept for a redesign of the Finder 'Get Info' window by Ramotion.

Everyone who has ever worked on MacOS has felt this pain at least once. You select a couple files, right click, open the menu, and tap Get Info... And there is a moment when even an Apple evangelist would start hating Mac OS. When it happened to us yet again, we decided it's time for a change.

The easiest thing to do would be to switch the Command+Alt+I hotkey and right mouse button actions. It's a much rarer scanario when you need to open 40 separate windows to compare each of them.


Ramotion proposes a Get Info window with logical groups and targeted information. For example, the Get Info window for an image might display format, size, resolution, color space. A music file would show format, size, duration, bitrate. Of course, selecting multiple files and clicking Get Info would show the amount of selected files and their size.

Take a look at their design and let us know what you think in the comments!

The last thing - multiple items info already exists. You select multiple items in Finder then right-click and select either the option or control key (I forgot) to get a "Summary" of the items

A thousand times YES. If only Apple would listen to power users, ever. I talked my dad into getting a MacBook Air recently, and in guiding him through the transition to Mac OS X, I am realizing just how many shortcomings I have begrudgingly had to accept over the years. It's embarrassing. He expected a little more user-friendliness for $1000, and it's hard not to blame him. Yosemite is pretty, but it really doesn't fix much of anything.

I find it simple and ugh to handle. I first used it and learned nearly every part of it in 5 minutes. The best part was searching the features in settings and no matter what you type, it highlights where it is rather than windows.
